RUSSIA – Juventus manager, Maurizio Sarri has disclosed that forward, Cristiano Ronaldo was angry during his side’s UEFA Champions League 2-1 win over Lokomotiv Moscow because he was not doing very well.
Goals from Aaron Ramsey and Douglas Costa ensured Maurizio Sarri’s side defeated the host.
However, Aleksei Miranchuk did score a goal for Lokomotiv Moscow
“Ronaldo was angry because he’s not doing very well, he’s had a knee problem for a few days and the adductor is easily fatigued,” Sarri told Sky Sport Italia.
“Already at the end of the first half he was nervous because of the adductor, I saw him in difficulty in a sprint and I did not want to risk it.”
Sarri added: “We did not have one of our best performances, we left room for the many counter attacks of our opponents and we knew that they would play a game of this type.
“The character aspect is good because at the end the team wanted victory at all costs and reached it with the goal of Douglas Costa in collaboration with Higuain.”
